In collaboration with Founding Partner Sponsor, Ruger, and Silver Sponsor, Baron Engraving, the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) is proud to auction the Doug Koenig Pro Shooting Signature SR1911. Industry-supported since its inception, the SASP provides youth development opportunities through team-based shooting sports and its National Championship has grown to be the largest action shooting event in the world.
Passionately supporting the SASP, Baron Engraving has created a highly collectible firearm with etched and selectively 24kt gold plated details, including signature supplied by Doug Koenig. Truly one of a kind, this individual gun is the ONLY SR1911 Competition to leave the Ruger factory without a KOENIG logo laser engraved on the left side of the slide.
All the proceeds from this firearm go to support the Scholastic Action Shooting Program, with a portion of the proceeds going into the SASP Scholarship Endowment to provide future college scholarships to athletes in the program. These scholarships are awarded to graduating high school senior action shooting athletes as they continue their education in college.
Together, with the support of Ruger, pro shooter Doug Koenig, and Baron Engraving, the Scholastic Action Shooting Program is auctioning this work of art to benefit the future of youth shooting sports across the country.
